4.3Dr. Rustico Balderian (left), President of the Colegio de Santa Lourdes Foundation of Leyte, Inc. signs contract with Regional Director Eliasem Castillo (right) of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) for the progress and process monitoring of 60 agrarian reform beneficiary organizations in Region VIII under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS).To ensure that what has been envisioned for the Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations (ARBOs) under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) project is attained, the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) tapped the services of Colegio de Santa Lourdes Foundation of Leyte, Inc. (CSLFLI).
 
ARCCESS was introduced by Agrarian Reform Secretary Virgilio de los Reyes to effectively implement the Program Beneficiaries Development (PBD) component of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) by transforming ARB organizations into viable agri-entrepreneurs thru the provision of common service facilities with the help of professional service providers.
 
This October, Dr. Rustico Balderian, President of the CSLFLI, accepted the challenge and signed the contract with DAR Regional Director Eliasem Castillo in a simple rite in Tacloban City. Castillo disclosed that under the P 4.034-million contract, CSLFLI will monitor the progress of the 60 ARB organizations throughout Region VIII that are currently being assisted under the ARCCESS project.
 
Balderian’s group will likewise monitor the process of the other professional service providers earlier tapped by DAR to provide these ARB organizations the market-oriented agri-technology and agri-extension services, as well as the remedying of any defects therein.
 
Among the common service facilities provided to these ARB organizations were threshers, hand tractors with implements, mechanical transplanters with seeder conveyor, combined harvesters, flatbed dyers, water pumps, cultivators and reapers.Furthermore, DAR had already signed partnership with the East-West Seed Company, Inc. and the Visayas State University early this year to provide the market-oriented agri-technology and agri-extension services to ARB organizations engaged in vegetable production and rice, cassava and sweet potato productions, respectively.
 
Later this month, Castillo added that DAR will enter into another agreement with a non-government organization that will provide the same services to ARB organizations in the three Samar provinces.
